The algae products market is driven by changing dietary preferences and the paradigm shift toward preventive health management practices amid rising healthcare costs and the increasing burden of lifestyle-related diseases. The growing geriatric population, coupled with the rising prevalence of chronic conditions, is anticipated to drive the growth of algae products worldwide. Moreover, consumer awareness about botanical variants and their functional properties has been a critical driver. As algae also support immunity development, the post-COVID-19 situation is predicted to witness steep sales of algae supplements

Algae have wide applications as functional ingredients in various food products as they are rich in essential oils such as omega-3 fatty acids and poly-unsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). Omega-3 fatty acids and PUFA are widely used in health food products and pharmaceuticals. Algae products are also being used in renewable raw materials for biofuels. According to the Department of Energy, algae can provide at least 30 times more energy than land-based crops currently utilized to make biofuels. Algae may also effectively recycle atmospheric carbon, making them an ideal environmentally beneficial energy source. Moreover, with the discovery of the potential of algal oil as a renewable fuel source, many petro-based companies, including Exxon, Shell, BP, Statoil, ENAP, and Chevron, are investing in biofuel R&D to produce methanol, ethanol, bio-butanol, biodiesel, and biocrude, as well as bio-based chemicals, thereby, augmenting the market growth.

North America holds the largest share of the algae products market due to a high level of consumer awareness about the nutritional benefits of the ingredient. By source, brown algae account for the largest market share.
